Rescue Me ID: 16-07-13-00054BRITTON (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    ***IN NEED OF FOSTER OR ADOPTER*** The Britton is coming the Britton is coming! 'Ello, I'm Britton, not to be confused with Great Britain, that country across the pond known for the monarchy and colonialism, but also Stonehenge, Shakespeare, the Beatles, and Alan Rickman. Although, I am GREAT! I am known for being lovable, affectionate, playful, well behaved and a little standoffish. I know: 'Sit,' 'Paw,' and 'Want to go for a Ride?' to which the answer is always, 'Heck Yeah!' I love kind respectful children and have lived with all ages. Cats are too much fun to chase, so I shouldn't live with any of those. I am 'dog-selective,' which means ... (Read More)that there are some dogs that I don't get along with, but I am generally good and can overcome my 'selectiveness' with a little extra guidance and direction from my humans. Some dogs do just fine with lots of freedom, but in my case, I feel insecure. If you can give me some structure, limits, direction and praise, my confidence will grow. I am not a barker, except in reaction to something unfamiliar. I hate loud noises, like thunder and gun-shots. I am housetrained and have free roam of my home. I am new to walking on a leash but I'm a quick learner. I am a 60lb 5-year-old female Pibble mix. I am spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. To adopt, please submit an application at www.pottersangelsrescue.org and to view additional adoptable dogs and for more information. Adoption fees apply and vary by age: Under 1 year $300; 1-5 years $250; 6-8 years $200; and Over 8 years by donation. Thank you for choosing to adopt! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-09-00452Stella (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Stella is a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who loves to play, but doesn't get along with all small dogs. She lives happily with her furr-less friends who are 6, 4, and 1 as well as cats, ducks and chickens. We have had her for about 3 years, and unfortunately have to move to South Carolina where we are not able to take her. She loves to play fetch, is very addicted to her food and loves her big brother, a 95lb Rhodesian Ridgeback. We rescued Stella from Helpers for Shelters who in turn rescued her from a kill shelter in North Carolina. She had had a litter of pups, who were easily adopted and all live happily with their families. She loves ... (Read More)her female owners and would protect them dearly. She actually does better with male owners because she is less apt to feel the need to protect them and keep them safe. She has a constant urge to listen and obey. She wants to be a good girl and works very hard to listen and do what her owners want. We do not let her on the furniture or beds, and she happily obeys and takes to her dog bed nicely. She knows how to heal, but gets overly excited when it's time to walk (she actually nibbles your fingers), so a prong collar is recommended just because she is very strong and lets squirrels get the best of her. She would do best in a home with lots of land and other large dogs or cats. She would not do well in a community of homes with small lots, as you just never know which dogs she will like, and which ones she will not. We will include her leash and prong collar along with her dog bed to help with her transition. She is a wonderful animal with so much love to give to the right loving family. I've attached a video of her playing with our children. https://youtu.be/YspKda5C0Us (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-20-00345Kukie (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    What do you get when you cross an Akita with a Pitbull? Well, we'll let you come up with the name for this cross, but let's start with this: A beautiful, athletic, high energy dog with a bit of a mind of his own! Let us introduce you to Kukie. Kukie is a 6 year old, 66 pound male with glossy, black fur and 'radar' ears. He's good with kids, does well unattended in the house, knows sit, stay, down, and heel (while leashed),and walks well on leash. Kukie is well behaved and playful. He's not crate trained, but due to his non destructive behavior, he's okay without it. Kukie is an escape artist, and we'd encourage any prospective adopter to ... (Read More)make sure that he is well enclosed or well leashed. He will bolt for the door, and he does love to run. At 6 years young, he has the energy to keep going and going and going! Now, if you're a runner or a hiker and you've got good command with dogs, his energy will be your greatest strength together.While he's indoors hanging out with his foster family, he's quiet as a mouse. That said, Kukie is an excellent watch dog, and we are confident that no one will arrive at your house and catch you off guard. We feel that Kukie will do well in a home where he has plenty of room to roam and gets plenty of exercise. Kukie would do well with an experienced dog owner, especially an owner who has worked with and owned dogs that have a bit of an independent streak. We all know that some of the most head strong people around us can be the most affectionate, and that holds true for Kukie. He will make an excellent companion in a home where he is not the 'boss,' but where he knows that his people have his back and will keep him lovingly in check. To adopt, please submit an application at this ink: http://form.jotform.com/form/11880935459 or visit www.pottersangelsrescue.org to view additional adoptable dogs and for more information.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-27-00012JACK. (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Potter's Angels? How about Potter's Giants! Here's Jack, a beautiful, 90 pound, lab/retriever/pit mix who's 3 years old and ready for action. Jack is a medium energy boy. He loves his exercise, however his foster mom says that he can be left alone in the house outside of a crate without getting into trouble. As with most big boys, though, he could use some consistent walking, running, or hiking to fulfill his needs. Jack is eager to please and very affectionate. He has even learned to balance a treat on his nose and catch it! You might hear him give a whine or two as he waits, but who can blame him? He needs some fuel to keep that big body ... (Read More)moving! He is neutered, house trained, trained to an electric fence, and even has a few other tricks up his sleeve. He will sit, shake a paw, and lie down on command. He does love his Kong and his bones, and will settle down for a good chew when he's ready to chill. Jack could use some work walking on a leash without pulling. Potter's would recommend that he be trained to walk with a head harness, since he is such a strong guy. Although Jack is friendly with all people he meets we are looking for a home without young children due to his size. Foster mom says that Jack is friendly toward other dogs and has a playmate his size who he loves to play hard with. However, he thinks cats were made for chasing so no cats for Jack! He can get distracted by strangers, she says, but we think that with his great size and beautiful face, he might distract a few strangers himself! If you are a lover of big dogs, Jack might be just the companion for you!

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-18-00638Charlie (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ello, Charlie here, so very pleased to make your acquaintance. I am a 50lb 2-3 year-old male American Pit Bull Terrier and I am neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. You might notice that I have a rather significant overbite that results from issues with my mandible and nasopharyngeal area and can cause some breathing difficulties from time to time. I have a prescription for two medications that I take only as needed-which is rarely. My people are happy to share more information with anyone interested in adopting me. It's just most important that I avoid becoming over-heated. I wear a 'Sense-ation' harness when walking. I have mastered, ... (Read More)'Sit,' 'Wait' and 'Down'. I sit and wait for my meals. So, now, I am learning, 'Leave It' and 'Off.' I am a happy puppy at heart. Sometimes, I am tempted by socks . . . but other than those wonderfully smelly garments, I don't bother my peoples' belongings. I do enjoy all manner of dog toys and chews. I like to play with them by myself, with people-friends, or with dog-friends, like me. My foster-sister, Libby and I are presently engaged in a never-ending war, called 'tug.' Even though people call it 'war,' its just play for us and we don't care who wins. I get along famously with quite a menagerie of dogs at my foster home . . . there is just one rather outspoken old man who is gruff with all of us, but I am learning to give him a wide-berth. Though no children live here, several visit regularly. They range from ages 8 to 14 and with slow respectful introductions I am very comfortable around them and rather enjoy being loved by them. I do recall that when younger children would rush at a dog I was frightened. When my people are away during the day, I stay in my crate. I complain a little at first, because I would much rather be with my people-friends or dog-friends, but I quiet down soon enough. I have been called, a lover and player, delightful, a sweet boy, and sometimes, a 'space-invader,' because I LOVE to snuggle. I am affectionate, eager to please and well-behaved. When I first meet new people, I can be a little standoffish-I do best if they just ignore me and allow me to approach them when I am ready. If you give me a little space when we first meet, I will be happy to 'invade your space' and give you love, if you let me.

Rescue Me ID: 15-11-05-00558Emerson (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you a well-balanced confident leader? Is your home environment calm and peaceful? Do you have experience working with strong intelligent breeds of dogs? Are you able to provide a well-structured routine? Are you a single adult or a couple looking for a companion dog? If you are, Emerson wants to meet you! Emerson is a 65 lb 4-year-old male Pit-Bull Terrier. He is neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Emerson is crate-trained and house trained. He LOVES using the treadmill for indoor walks, as well as walking outside when on leash. Emerson is making great strides in his training and we feel he may be able to go to a home with another ... (Read More)dog who is calm and relaxed, but will wait for just the right fit. His interactions with other pets are fine under structured circumstances. But, we do not feel that Emerson would be successful in unstructured off-leash interactions at this point, because he becomes overly excited. However, every day he is showing improvement in this area! Nonetheless, we also recommend a home without children, so that a calm environment can be provided. Emerson likes having a routine. He thrives with a consistent daily schedule. Emerson is affectionate and loves a good head rub more than anything else. Emerson is eager to please and playful. Emerson does not like to be separated from his people if they are home. Don't expect to leave him out in the yard and have him be happy about it! However, if you leave the home, he quietly waits in his crate for your return. Emerson is currently being fostered by and is working with Paula Bergeron of the Good Dogma Canine Rehabilitation and Training Center in Grafton, NH. Emerson's foster/trainer, Paula, will offer his adopter four free lessons, and continued support for a positive beginning. **Emerson is part of our Home for the Holidays Special and his adoption fee has been reduced to $150 until the end of January** Dear Santa, I have been a very good boy and I was hoping, if it wouldn't be too much trouble . . . could I have a person and a home to call my very own?

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Vermont
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Vermont if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Vermont Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
